Thank you for checking out my About Me Page! I am a wife, mother, and former Director of Inside Sales. I'm a Leadership Coach helping women who are corporate professionals and entrepreneurs become better self leaders and step into their leadership power in order to accelerate their success at leading others.
I've led and coached a team of 40+ sales reps to hit a multi million dollar yearly sales quota. I've also mentored, coached and trained new and existing employees to accelerate their success by giving them the tools and resources to maximize their performance.
Many times I've been the only woman at the leadership table and every time I've been the only woman of color at the table. Unfortunately, women aren't giving the tools they need to secure a seat at the table or be successful if they are given a seat. My dream is to make sure that women excel in leadership through executive coaching.
If you are a professional in the corporate world or an entrepreneur, I help you stand up, stand out, and accelerate your success in leading others through executive coaching. With my LeadHER First Coaching Program, I help you claim your leadership crown and become a confident leader.
As a woman of color in a male-dominated industry, I had to overcome many challenges including stereotypes that usually follow not just women, but women of color. I also had to overcome the challenge of showing up as an expert to those whose experience in selling cars spanned many years. I dealt with harassment and had to overcome situations where I felt uncomfortable due to inappropriate advances. I didn't know how to prevent these issues or protect myself as a woman.
I didn't see other women of color that looked like me in leadership positions. I struggled with low confidence, imposter syndrome, and lack of leadership skills even though I was promoted to leadership positions. I tried to emulate the leaders I saw which were mostly white men. When I tried to show up my authentic self, I was told I should do things differently. Because of my challenges, others didn't respect me as a leader. I allowed others to dictate how I showed up as a leader and because I wasn't experiencing the success I wanted, I became unhappy and thought I could never be an effective leader.
After coming to the realization that my challenges and obstacles were unique to me being a woman of color, I made a choice to become a better self leader. I learned how to be a leader that is effective, but also authentic. I learned keys skills of leadership but put my own "special sauce" as a leader and woman of color in my strategy. With confidence, willingness to learn, lead with love, and focus on the development of my team to help us reach our end goal, I'm in love with being a leader. I have stepped into my power and I'm never looking back.
Instead of just focusing on the development of my team in the corporate world, as a leadership coach, I want to help other women who are entrepreneurs, leaders and executives to find their authentic leadership voice also. It was here I realized, I've contributed to the corporate world in may ways, helping make millions, so why not help others do the same. That’s how I found my ultimate passion and purpose…
Are you ready to become a confident and authentic self leader who others would love to follow?
